Re: wrong spelling

Poster: "Ed Hopkins" <Ed.Hopkins@MCI.Com>

The Poeta Atlantiae quoted another poet thus:

> "A one-l lama is a priest
> A two-l llama is a beast
> An I will bet a pink pyjama
> There isn't any three-l lllama"
> Ogden Nash

then added parenthetically:
> (BTW, there is a tale that someone once told Nash that a "Three alarm-er"
> (pronouncable as three-l lllama) is a fairly big fire by fireman standards.
> His response, purportedly, was "pooh." (or words to that effect)

When you say "that effect", do you mean the effect of refusing
to pay up on the bet he'd lost?
